Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 TouchWiz UX update gets date

By Posted 28 Jul 2011, 17:10

Samsung today announced the next major update for their popular Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 device, with a software update for their TouchWiz UX software. But much like the original launch of the tablet back in June, the only place where you will be able to get your hands on it is in NYC. At first anyway.

Yes, that’s right. Samsung will be primarily offering this new major software update to those who join the official unveiling on Wednesday, August 3 from 11am. The Samsung Experience will take place at The Shops at Columbus Circle, Third Floor where you will finally get a taste of the new fully-customizable Samsung TouchWiz UX software that comes with Live Panel and Mini Apps services.

But as this is a major software update, Samsung are also offering a completely overhauled Samsung Media Hub user interface, Amazon Music Cloud Player, Amazon Kindle & Words with Friends applications, and Enterprise Mobile solutions.

The whole Samsung Experience event that is showcasing this new TouchWiz UX software will start at 11am, where the press will be the first to see the new software in action during the Media News conference that is taking place. Lunch will be provided to those in attendance while you sit and watch the Onsite Galaxy Tab 10.1 Software Updates take over your tablet.

But if you are not a media mogul, don’t fret as just a few hours later at 1pm, the Samsung Experience will open up to the general public where any member who wishes to upgrade the software on their Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, can sit and watch their new experience be side-loaded onto their device.

If you aren’t able to make it to the event yourself, Engadget will be on hand to give you all the details when the event comes around. Remember, Wednesday August 3 is when it is taking place.

If you cast your mind back, Samsung pulled the same stunt when they unenvied the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, in which at noon, at Best Buy, NYC Union Square, the first 200 customers also received a matching leather pouch to store their new ray of sunshine in.

As the NYC release was on June 8 of this year, by June 16 we were already aware that a new updated version of TouchWiz UX was coming to the Samsung Galaxy Tab in a future upgrade, and that time is now.

Are you looking forward to the new TouchWiz UX software? Or are you happy with what you already have?
